    The comment about sending your children where teachers send their children is of utmost importance. It demonstrates committment and advocacy for all of the children in that school. Teachers should always treat their students as they would want their own children to be treated . My philosophy for 32 years!

    BALANCE THE BUDGET
    Go where the money is, tax the rich!
    Increase the retirement age one month per year for the next 24 years.
    Take the ceiling off of the amount with-held for Social Security and Medical Care.
    Those who earn over $200,000 in income per year after retirement can’t draw Social Security. They could still draw Medi-Care. Cut foreign aid by 25 %.
    Cut defense by 5% in a selective way so it will not weaken the common defense.
    Spend more on education, unemployment benefits, food stamps and welfare.
